The WMO HydroHub Phase II was launched on 1 September 2021 for a 5-year period, to enhance capacities of National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs) in sustainable operation and effective delivery of hydrological monitoring services for disaster risk reduction, social and economic development and environmental protection. Advancing the use of innovative measurement approaches and technologies in operational hydrometry is a core aim of the HydroHub and will be the focus of a number of its activities including Innovation Calls and Innovation Workshops.
This Innovation Workshop was co-convened by the WMO HydroHub, the International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS) MOXXI Working group and the WMO Public-Private Engagement Office.
The Workshop Agenda is available here.
